Huawei row China warns Canada of consequences of helping USA

first_imgBeijing: China warned Canada on Friday that it needs to be aware of the consequences of aiding the US in an extradition case involving Chinese tech giant Huawei that is believed to have sparked the detentions of two Canadians in China. Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang’s comments came after US Vice President Mike Pence and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called for the release of Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor. Both were arrested on December 10 after Canada detained a Huawei executive wanted by the United States on fraud charges. While China has denied they were taken in retaliation, it has repeatedly implied that there is a strong connection between the cases. Also Read – ‘Hong Kong won’t rule out Chinese help over protests’Korvig, a former diplomat and Asia expert at the International Crisis Group, and Spavor, a businessman, have been accused of colluding to steal state secrets. Canada has repeatedly urged their immediate release, calling their detentions arbitrary. Neither has been permitted access to lawyers or family members. “We hope that the Canadian side can have a clear understanding of the consequences of endangering itself for the gains of the US and take immediate actions to correct its mistakes so as to spare itself the suffering from growing damage,” Geng said at a daily news briefing.

Her attorney has argued that comments by US President Donald Trump suggest the case against her is politically motivated. Washington has pressured other countries to limit the use of Huawei’s technology, warning they could be opening themselves up to surveillance and theft of information. China and the US are currently embroiled in a trade dispute that is weighing heavily on global financial markets. Another Canadian held in China, Robert Schellenberg, was re-sentenced to death in a drug case following Meng’s detention. His case is currently under appeal.last_img read more

2 black men arrested at Starbucks get an apology from police

first_imgPHILADELPHIA – Rashon Nelson initially brushed it off when the Starbucks manager told him he couldn’t use the restroom because he wasn’t a paying customer.He thought nothing of it when he and his childhood friend and business partner, Donte Robinson, were approached at their table and were asked if they needed help. The 23-year-old entrepreneurs declined, explaining they were just waiting for a business meeting.A few minutes later, they hardly noticed when the police came into the coffee shop — until officers started walking in their direction.“That’s when we knew she called the police on us,” Nelson told The Associated Press in the first interview by the two black men since video of their April 12 trespassing arrests touched off a furor around the U.S. over racial profiling or what has been dubbed “retail racism” or “shopping while black.”Nelson and Robinson were led away in handcuffs from the shop in the city’s well-to-do Rittenhouse Square neighbourhood in an incident recorded on a white customer’s cellphone.In the week since, the men have met with Starbucks’ apologetic CEO and have started pushing for lasting change at the coffee shop chain, including new policies on discrimination and ejecting customers.“We do want to make sure it doesn’t happen to anybody again,” Robinson said. “What if it wasn’t us sitting there? What if it was the kid that didn’t know somebody that knew somebody? Do they make it to jail? Do they die? What happens?”On Thursday, they also got an apology from Philadelphia police Commissioner Richard Ross, a black man who at first staunchly defended his officers’ handling of the encounter.“I should have said the officers acted within the scope of the law, and not that they didn’t do anything wrong,” Ross said. “Words are very important.”At a news conference, a sombre Ross said he “failed miserably” in addressing the arrests. He said that the issue of race is not lost on him and that he shouldn’t be the person making things worse.“Shame on me if, in any way, I’ve done that,” he said.He also said the police department did not have a policy for dealing for such situations but does now and it will be released soon.Nelson and Robinson said they went to the Starbucks to meet Andrew Yaffe, a white local businessman, over a potential real estate opportunity. Three officers showed up not long after. Nelson said they weren’t questioned but were told to leave immediately.Yaffe showed up as the men were being handcuffed and could be seen in the video demanding an explanation for the officers’ actions. Nelson and Robinson did not resist arrest.“When you know that you did nothing wrong, how do you really react to it?” Nelson said. “You can either be ignorant or you can show some type of sophistication and act like you have class. That was the choice we had.”It was not their first encounter with police. But neither had been arrested before, setting them apart from many of those they grew up with in their gritty southwest Philadelphia neighbourhood.Nelson and Robinson spent hours in a jail cell and were released after midnight, when the district attorney declined to prosecute them.Nelson said he wondered if he’d make it home alive.“Any time I’m encountered by cops, I can honestly say it’s a thought that runs through my mind,” Nelson said. “You never know what’s going to happen.”Starbucks has said the coffee shop where the arrests occurred has a policy that restrooms are for paying customers only, but the company has no overall policy. The men’s attorney, Stewart Cohen, said they were illegally profiled.The arrests prompted protests at the Starbucks and a national boycott. Kevin Johnson, CEO of the Seattle-based company, came to Philadelphia to meet with the men, called the arrests “reprehensible” and ordered more than 8,000 Starbucks stores closed on the afternoon of May 29 so that nearly 175,000 employees can receive training on unconscious bias. Starbucks has not identified the employee who called police.Robinson said that he appreciates the public support but that anger and boycotting Starbucks are not the solution.The men said they are looking for more lasting results and are in mediation with Starbucks to make changes, including the posting in stores of a customer bill of rights; the adoption of new policies on customer ejections and racial discrimination; and independent investigations of complaints.“You go from being someone who’s just trying to be an entrepreneur, having your own dreams and aspirations, and then this happens,” Nelson said. “How do you handle it? Do you stand up? Do you fight? Do you sit down and just watch everyone else fight for you? Do you let it slide, like we let everything else slide with injustice?”___Whack is The Associated Press’ national writer for race and ethnicity.

Jobless rate to top 30 pct next year

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Unemployment will soar above 30 percent next year, a report by the Center of Planning and Economic Research (KEPE) showed.The report published in the KEPE journal showed that the jobless rate this year will amount to 28.5 percent before climbing to 30.4 percent in 2014. Should this forecast prove correct, it will generate even more difficult conditions in society and the market: “This is a particularly negative development, but it is also inevitable given the continuing reduction in economic activity,” the report noted.In this context, KEPE estimates that the economy will shrink by 4.09 percent this year, against a budget forecast for 4.5 percent, followed by a 0.55 percent contraction in 2014, while the government expects a return to growth to the tune of 0.6 percent next year.KEPE also projects deflation of 0.18 percent this year and 0.12 percent in 2014.last_img read more

MySpace bradé à 35 millions

first_imgMySpace bradé à 35 millionsLe groupe News Corp avait racheté pour 580 millions de dollars le site internet MySpace en 2005. Cette fois, les propositions de rachat se situeraient bien en dessous des 100 millions souhaités et Specific Media, une régie publicitaire en ligne, se serait procuré le site pour une somme avoisinant les 35 millions de dollars seulement.MySpace avait tout d’abord été créé en 2003 par des professionnels du marketing Chris DeWolfe et Tom Anderson. Evincés par le nouvel acquéreur News Corp en 2009, le site était rapidement devenu le numéro un des réseaux sociaux. Aujourd’hui, MySpace, a été vendu pour quelques dizaines de millions de dollars à une régie publicitaire en ligne, Specific Media, qui entend en faire un vecteur pour ses activités, indique l’AFP. Acquis pour 580 millions de dollars par News Corp en 2005, le site aurait été revendu 17 fois moins cher après avoir accusé une perte de 100 millions de dollars rien qu’en 2010. Selon les informations fournies par les médias américains, News Corp aurait cédé le site pour une somme située entre 30 et 40 millions de dollars en décidant de procéder pour une nouvelle fois à plusieurs licenciements (la moitié des effectifs soit 200 personnes alors que 47% du personnel avait déjà été supprimé en janvier). En effet, comme l’indique le site d’information All Things Digital, les suppressions de postes seraient une des conditions de la vente. Rupert Murdoch, le PDG de News Corp pourrait aussi accepter de conserver une part minoritaire dans MySpace.MySpace “a transformé la façon dont les gens découvrent, consomment et entrent en relation avec les contenus en ligne”, a souligné le directeur général de Specific Media, Tim Vanderhook, dans un communiqué. “Il y a beaucoup de synergies entre nos entreprises car nous nous attachons tous à enrichir l’expérience des médias numériques en les rendant plus pertinents et plus intéressants”, a-t-il ajouté.À lire aussi”Trash Tag Challenge” : le défi utile qui incite Twitter et Instagram à nettoyer la planèteSelon le cabinet eMarketer, MySpace était encore en 2008 le réseau social récoltant le plus de recettes publicitaires (604 millions de dollars). Cependant, alors que Facebook triplait ses recettes publicitaires en 2009 pour dépasser la barre des 738 millions de dollars, MySpace  a accusé une chute de plus de 22%. “Cette année, eMarketer estime que MySpace gagnera juste 183,5 millions de dollars en recettes publicitaires dans le monde”, en chute de 36,3% sur un an. “Facebook, par comparaison, gagnera 4,05 milliards de dollars en publicité cette année”.Une des explications, fournie par Sean Parker, ancien partenaire du PDG fondateur de Facebook, serait que l’équipe de direction de MySpace n’avait “pas réussi à faire suffisamment évoluer le produit”. Il ajoute que, selon lui, “cela a été en gros une grosse pile de trucs mal conçus pendant de nombreuses, nombreuses années. A un moment, s’ils s’étaient contentés de copier Facebook rapidement, ils auraient été Facebook”.Le 30 juin 2011 à 15:03 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

To get Travelweek delivered to your agency for free, subscribe here.TORONTO — Turkey is making a comeback, with tourists returning in droves this past year following the sharp fall in value of the Turkish Lira. The over 40% dip in value, according to IATA, is blamed largely on a diplomatic rift with the United States and a renewed focus on Turkey’s heavy reliance on capital inflows. A recession seems likely but, as history has shown, when economic troubles increase, so too does the number of tourists in search of cheap prices.As per July 2018 figures, tourist arrivals in Turkey increased by 11.74% compared to July 2017. In the first half of 2018 (January-July), the number of tourists increased by 24.9% over the same period the year before, reaching to 21,639,802. Among them are thousands of Canadians, with 59,893 arriving between January and July 2018, an increase of 33.78% compared to the same period in 2017.These numbers are in sharp contrast to those that predate 2017, when events that took place the year prior, including a failed coup and terror attacks, resulted in a 23% decrease in international tourist arrivals. But it didn’t take long for Turkey to recover. Sandra Carvao, Chief, Market Trends and Competitiveness for the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) tells Travelweek that Turkey’s tourism numbers rebounded quickly – and strongly – in 2017 with a 30% increase, a trend that is continuing in 2018.Grand Bazaar, Istanbul“Tourism in Turkey picked up in 2017, mainly from the second quarter onwards, growing at double-digit monthly rates. International arrivals rebounded firmly in 2017 to reach 37.6 million,” she says, citing the recovery of the Russian outbound market, promotional efforts and new infrastructure development as contributing factors. “Turkey has a wide and unique offering of cultural, heritage, urban, sun and sea tourism products and continues to diversify its tourism offer.”More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesSelcuk Unal, Ambassador of Turkey to Canada, tells Travelweek that due to the momentum gained in 2017, 2018 and beyond are looking hopeful. “2018 is a good year, with increased number of tourists. Like in 2018, we expect tourism figures to continue to rise in great numbers in 2019 as well.”Unal, who wants to remind travel agents that Turkey is a safe country with no major attack against civilians in the last two years, adds that current exchange rates have made prices cheaper in all Turkish tourist destinations compared to one year ago. That said, he also adds that the government won’t be resting on its laurels when it comes to economic reforms.“Our government fully recognizes all the global ongoing economic challenges, and is taking the necessary steps in order to achieve a healthier reevaluation of the Turkish Lira,” he says.Until then, Turkey’s most popular destinations are reaping the benefits of the low currency, including Antalya, Istanbul and Cappadocia. Antalya, says Unal, broke new records in incoming tourists who came in search of sun, sand and excellent golf facilities.Tour operators are also reporting comeback numbers to Turkey, including Intrepid Travel, which says the country is its fastest-growing destination to date in 2018 with an incredible 214% growth in global bookings compared to 2017. This comes after the company experienced a 73% drop in global bookings to the country between 2014 and 2017.Bosphorus views, Istanbul“This impressive growth shows that the rebound has been rapid and that travel to the destination is nearly back to where it was four years ago, when travel to Turkey was at an all-time high,” says Megan Bailey, director of sales and customer experience for Intrepid Travel in North America. “Our current bookings show that travel to Turkey is continuing on a rapid upward spike in 2019l. In line with 2018 growth, we are seeing a nearly 300% growth in 2019 bookings.”More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTWith bookings back up, Intrepid has launched three new itineraries for 2019: the 10-day ‘Turkey Winter Discovery’; the eight-day ‘Turkey Highlights’; and the three-day ‘Taste of Istanbul’ for clients in search of a quick introduction to the destination.“Instead of shying away from the country based on current economic relations, Intrepid Travel is increasing operations in Turkey to encourage travellers to visit the beautiful country, year round,” adds Bailey. “These new trips are a celebration of our travellers’ genuine acceptance of the world we all share and are, more importantly, helping a country find hope through tourism.”Bailey also notes that air connectivity for Canadians has never been easier (“Turkish Airlines has the largest flight network in the world”), plus Istanbul’s highly anticipated new airport is scheduled to open next month (“It is expected to become the busiest airport in the world”). Coupled that with a wealth of land and sea offerings, Turkey has emerged as a breakout destination for 2018-2019.On the many reasons for Canadians to visit, Unal says: “Turkey is ready to welcome more Canadians. With cities steeped in history, beaches and natural wonders, Turkey promises unique vacation experiences for all visitors.” Posted by Turkey rebounds thanks to low Lira, tour ops & travellers coming back in droves Friday, September 28, 2018 Tags: Turkeylast_img read more

Violence drives women to flee Central Americas Northern Triangle

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica sees spike in refugees driven by Northern Triangle violence Costa Rica serves as a corridor for Asians, Africans migrating to the US Guatemala-Honduras customs union first step in regional development plan US to spend $750 million to attack Central America poverty woes WASHINGTON — Late last year, Norma — the wife of a police officer from El Salvador — was abducted by four members of the M18 street gang, taken to a nearby cemetery and raped repeatedly.“They took turns. They tied me by the hands and stuffed my mouth so I wouldn’t scream,” Norma said, adding that when it was over, “they threw me in the trash.”After the vicious attack, Norma went to live with her aunt and uncle in another city; she changed her phone number and never left the house. But the M18 gang continued to threaten her and her children. Having no other option, she and her husband decided she should leave El Salvador. Norma fled through Mexico with a coyote, or human smuggler.In Gloria’s case, the victim wasn’t her, but her 13-year-old grandson. She said members of an armed criminal group kidnapped him.“When we finally found his body, it was at the morgue,” she recalled. “They had cut his head off, tied his hands and feet, and cut him all over.”Complaining to the authorities in these countries is often useless.Natalia, a native of the Mexican state of Michoacán, went to police after masked men broke into her home, abducted her common-law husband and left in a federal police vehicle. A forensics official eventually showed her a tortured body, telling her, “this is what they do to people who ask too many questions.”All three women, whose names have been changed to protect their identity, are now living in the United States with asylum applications pending. They were among 160 women interviewed in August for a study issued last week by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR).“Women on the Run” is 56 pages of first-hand accounts by refugees from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras — known as the Northern Triangle countries — and Mexico, as well as a description of the violence, persecution and lack of government protection that forced them to flee.“Most of the headlines are about Europe, Syria and Iraq, but this must no longer be ignored,” said U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres. “Organized crime and violence have dramatically increased in Central America and Mexico, with the countries of the Northern Triangle leading the world’s homicide ranking. As a result, more and more people are seeking asylum in the United States and elsewhere.”Guterres, a former prime minister of Portugal, said that since 2008, his agency — which operates on an annual budget of $7 billion — has recorded a five-fold increase in asylum seekers arriving to the U.S. from the Northern Triangle region of Central America. It’s also seen a nearly 13-fold jump in asylum seekers from the same countries arriving in Mexico and other parts of Central America.“Sixty percent of children arriving at the southern U.S. border [in 2014] and nearly half arriving in Mexico were victims of violence, up from only 13 percent in 2008,” he said. “This report emphasizes the urgency of the crisis. It looks at women, what forces them to flee, and what risks they face along the way.” Copies of a report by the UN Refugee Agency, “Women on the Run,” which focuses on violence perpetrated against women fleeing Central America’s “Northern Triangle.” Larry Luxner/The Tico TimesGang-controlled neighborhoods; No protection from authoritiesOf the 160 women interviewed by UNHCR, 63 are from El Salvador, 30 each from Honduras and Guatemala, and 37 from Mexico. All have either received asylum from U.S. immigration authorities, or have at least been found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture if returned to their home countries.“These women were raped, assaulted, extorted and threatened by members of heavily armed transnational groups,” said Guterres, who is stepping down in December after 10 years at the helm of UNHCR. “They spoke about their families having to contend with gunfights and death threats. They watched family members being abducted and murdered. The authorities often struggle to contain this violence, and many of these women are left with no choice but to run for their lives.”Guterres added: “Becoming a refugee is always an ordeal, but believe me, for most of these women, the journey to safety is absolute hell. That’s why the protection of women and children is a core priority for UNHCR globally.”Among the report’s findings:85 percent of women interviewed described living in neighborhoods controlled by armed criminal groups.64 percent described direct threats and attacks by such groups as at least one of the primary reasons for their flight.58 percent of women from Northern Triangle countries gave accounts of sexual assault and sexual abuse.100 percent of the women interviewed who reported attacks, sexual assaults, rapes or threats to the police said they received ineffective protection, or no protection at all, from the authorities.10 percent of the women interviewed said the police themselves had persecuted them in their home countries.“This report makes a very important contribution,” said Doris Meissner, former commissioner of the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service and now a senior fellow at the Washington-based Migration Policy Institute. “It forces us to deepen our understanding of what’s going on in our own neighborhood and stimulates much more consideration of what we need to do.”According to U.S. government statistics, 82 percent of the 16,077 women from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Mexico who were interviewed by U.S. immigration authorities in 2014 were found to have a credible fear of persecution or torture, and were allowed to pursue asylum claims in the United States.“No country is more dangerous for women than El Salvador,” said Guterres. “Each day, more and more people are forced to flee. The region hasn’t seen such violence since the civil wars of the 1980s, but none of the women we interviewed could find safety by turning to their own government.”He added that Washington must pay more attention to the refugee crisis brewing in this hemisphere.“What we are witnessing today is a mixed movement made up of people who likely have a fear of persecution, and others mainly moving for economic reasons,” he warned. “All of them have human dignity and rights that must be respected. But countries have the obligation to grant protection to people fleeing. This is not the first refugee crisis in the Americas region, but it is unique — and I’m convinced it can only be solved by a regional approach.”Costa Rica increasingly a destination for Northern Triangle refugeesThe United States isn’t the only place to which refugees are fleeing. Last year, according to UNHCR figures, Costa Rica received more asylum applications from Salvadorans than Colombians for the first time ever. And Mexico has seen a 65 percent jump in asylum cases in a single year, even while facing its own high levels of violence.Some 40 percent of women surveyed by UNHCR didn’t even report the crimes they fled, believing the police would not only be ineffective but perhaps even criminally involved. A huge red flag, said Eric Olson, associate director of the Wilson Center’s Latin America Program, is the fact that 69 percent of these women fled somewhere else within their country before leaving altogether.“Often, the justice system in these countries is dysfunctional, and only 3 or 4 percent of cases are actually prosecuted fully and end up with some kind of sentence,” Olson said. “The prospects of avoiding violence by holding people accountable is almost non-existent for most poor women.” Loris Guzzetta/UNHCRNorma, who’s living at an undisclosed U.S. location as she awaits the outcome of her asylum case, said she’s still traumatized by the gang rape she suffered in El Salvador.“I feel dirty, so very dirty. This is why I wake up not wanting to live,” she told UNHCR interviewers. “Sometimes, I wake up and think it was just a nightmare, but then I feel the pain and remember it was not.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Man arrested after Myanmar unrest

first_imgYANGON, Myanmar (AP) – A man accused of posting online photos from violent clashes between displaced Muslims and security forces was arrested in Myanmar’s restive state of Rakhine, police and an activist said Wednesday.It was not immediately clear what charges Than Shwe, a 29-year-old Rohingya Muslim, would face.A police officer who refused to give his name because he was not authorized to speak to the media said the man was trying to cause trouble during the visit of U.N. human rights envoy Tomas Ojea Quintana, who was touring the strife-torn region. One person was killed and 10 others injured, he said.Than Shwe, who works for an organization that delivers food and supplies to camps for Rohingya Muslims, was accused of posting images of the dead and injured online, Aung Win said.Twenty officers went to his home at 4 a.m. on Monday and brought him to the police station, he said.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Comments   Share   Myanmar, a predominantly Buddhist nation that only recently emerged from decades of isolation and military rule, has been wracked by sectarian violence in the last year with more than 250 people killed and 140,000 others displaced.Most of the victims have been Rohingya Muslims.Tensions have been high in hardest-hit Rakhine, home to most of the internally displaced, who have little access to food, water, work or basic services. They have clashed several times with security forces in recent months.The most recent unrest occurred after the body of a fisherman was found in a creek near Ohn Taw Gyi camp on Friday, said Rakhine state spokesman Win Myaing, who called it a drowning.But rumors quickly spread that the man had been beaten to death by police.“He was bleeding from both ears. It looked like he had been smashed in the face by a rifle butt, all his teeth were gone,” said Aung Win, a well-known Rohingya activist who saw the body before burial. “This wasn’t a drowning. He was pretty clearly beaten and tortured.”A dispute over the death and custody of the body sparked several riots, which were broken up by police who fired first into the air and then into the crowd, Win Myaing said.

Windstar Cruises announces return to Asia

first_imgWindstar Cruises announces return to AsiaWindstar Cruises announces return to AsiaWindstar Cruises’ second season for the 212-passenger Star Legend in Asia kicks off in the northern Autumn of 2018 after the vessel’s inaugural Alaska season in the upcoming Summer months.The return to Asia for Windstar in 2018/19 will bring four new cruises, as well as the recurrence of four of the company’s most popular cruises from its 2017/18 season sailing in the region for a total of 27 sailings.Windstar has increased departures for popular Japan cruises timed with its famous cherry blossom season and spectacular fall foliage. New Asia itineraries include a comprehensive exploration of greater China; an Asian ‘pop culture’ journey from Tokyo to South Korea and Beijing; a Thailand and Malaysia cruise big on beaches and big cities; and a new itinerary discovering Indonesia, including magical Bali.“Windstar is able to do so many things in Asia that only small ships can do,” said Windstar President, John Delaney.“We can sail up rivers and dock in the central areas of Shanghai, Ho Chi Minh City, and Bangkok. We can anchor off Patong Bay in Phuket, Thailand and small islands in Indonesia like Pulau Bawean on the Java Sea. We visit small ports in the Philippines giving our guests access to places found at the top of Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Islands and Best Beaches lists. Places like Palawan, home to the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River, one of the new seven natural world wonders, and beautiful Boracay with white sand beaches perfect for snorkelling. All of our itineraries are carefully crafted by knowledgeable experts with scenic cruising and active exploration in mind. Our new Star Collector sailings have been extremely popular. They combine in-depth itineraries into longer back-to-back sailings, meaning real time for travellers to discover ancient traditions and contemporary cultures.”Windstar also offers a variety of pre and post cruise packages in Asia, including a foray to Angkor Wat from Bangkok and a visit to Beijing’s Great Wall.In addition, Windstar offers more than 200 shore excursions in Asia in 2018/19, including experiences like visiting a traditional Malay home, exploring Komodo National Park on foot, and participating in a night tour of Shanghai with dinner on The Bund (Asia’s most famous street).The following new 2018-19 Asia cruises are now open for booking: Comprehensive Indonesia Exploration The 11-day Singapore to Bali (Benoa) (or reverse) cruise includes notable stops in Jakarta and Semarang in Indonesia, where guests can explore Dutch trading buildings in the Old Quarter or a day trip to Borobudur, the Buddhist temple and UNESCO World Heritage Site that dates back to the 8th century. Guests can take a stroll along alabaster-sand beaches on Bali or check out the steaming vents on restless Mount Bromo, one of Indonesia’s most spectacular volcanoes. This cruise is the best way to dive in-depth to the culture, breathtaking landscapes and Komodo dragons of Indonesia. And for relaxing, Windstar offers two ‘beach days’ on two small islands – Pulau Bawean and Pulau Menyawakan, remote locations where only small ships and ferries go unless guests charter a flight. The cruise occurs over the Christmas and New Year holidays, with Christmas Day in Jakarta and New Year’s Eve in Komodo National Park.Thai Temples, Malaysian Monarchs  The 11-day Bangkok to Singapore cruise sails along the coasts of Thailand, Malaysia, and China and is perfect for those big on beaches and natural beauty as well as contemporary urban wonders. Ports alternate between relaxing and exploring in off the beaten path beaches and buzzing metropolises, and an overnight in Phuket means time for dining, dancing, or watching nightlife beneath the neon glow of a thriving waterfront along Patong Bay. Guests can dine on pungent durian or warm naan bread paired with spicy tandoori chicken among the varied and distinct aromas of the Jonkers Walk street food and restaurant fare in Malacca. Vault skyward in a double-decker elevator to the breathtaking observation deck on the 86th floor of Petronas Towers high above Kuala Lumpur. Snorkel or swim off the quiet shores of an isolated beach near Langkawi. This cruise concludes among the buzzing scooters and towering skyscrapers in thriving Singapore.Comprehensive China Exploration  The 11-day cruise from Hong Kong to Beijing (or reverse) visits the four major cities in greater China, including Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, and Taipei, with overnights in both Shanghai and Hong Kong for extra exploration. The cruise also stops at Ishigaki Island, Japan, known for clear waters and coral reefs and Qingdao, China – the home of Tsingtao Beer and a former German outpost/colony. Soak in powder blue hot springs and taste the umami of oyster pancakes and stinky tofu offered by Taiwanese street vendors. Climb the Great Wall for an unparalleled view of China’s past and to the Star Bar for an unparalleled view of your yacht in the present.Pop Culture Kings of Asia  The 11-day cruise from Tokyo to Beijing (or reverse) is a balance of big, modern cities like Tokyo, Osaka, Seoul (via Busan), and Beijing in addition to smaller and more off-the-beaten path places like Karatsu, Japan and Tamano/Uno port in the Inland Sea of Japan. J-pop, Harajuku culture, and Korean dramas are born from the centre of Asian pop culture – Japan and South Korea, and on this sailing, Windstar guests can shop up a storm in the largest underground mall in Seoul and admire the lasting grace of geishas with overnights in Busan and Osaka. But perhaps the most stunning experience is taking in the view cruising the Inland Sea and mixing equal parts pop culture and cultural heritage throughout the journey.Longer sailings such as the returning Star Collector: The Grandeur of Southeast Asia, a 26-day cruise from Singapore to Bangkok (or reverse) combine Windstar’s most popular itineraries for an even more in-depth exploration of each region and multiple country visits. Star Collector Voyages in Asia range from 14 to 47 days, feature few repeat ports to hidden harbours and classic cities, guest speakers, free daily laundry and unpacking once, the ultimate in convenience allowing more time to get closer to the diverse places the ship will visit.New for 2018/19 in Asia for Windstar are Star Collector: Shrines and Cities of Asia, a 22-day cruise from Tokyo to Hong Kong; and Star Collector: Epic East Asia, a 47-day cruise from Bangkok to Tokyo departing 8 February 2019.Four itineraries in Asia that Windstar is offering again include Grand Japan, a 10-day voyage perfectly timed for Autumn colours and cherry blossom seasons – arguably the two best times to be in Japan; Icons of Southeast Asia, a slightly shortened 12-day cruise from Hong Kong to Bangkok (and reverse); The Best of the Philippines & Borneo, a 14-day cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong; and Malay & Singapore Sojourn, a seven-day Singapore roundtrip cruise that now features an overnight in Phuket (new for 2018).Bookings to be directed to Windstar Australia on 1300 749 875 or reservations@windstar.com.auWindstar Cruises operates a six-ship fleet of small sailing and all-suite ships visiting hundreds global ports in 2018 and 2019 sailing throughout Europe, the Caribbean, Costa Rica and the Panama Canal, Asia, Alaska, Canada and New England, and cruising year-round in Tahiti.

The New York Daily News reported there are conflicting claims about Smith’s 1939 song “That’s Why Darkies Were Born.” The song originated in the 1931 Broadway review “George White’s Scandals,” and was considered satire.

first_imgMath whiz & elderly fight city hall in ‘The Helpline’ by Lincee Ray, The Associated Press Posted Jul 23, 2019 8:31 am PDT “The Helpline” (Atria Books), by Katherine ColletteBeing an expert in mathematics is a useful skill in extremely small circles.

In her debut novel, “The Helpline,” Katherine Collette follows an eccentric woman with zero people skills who reluctantly finds herself in the arms of a supportive community.Germaine Johnson loves math, Sudoku puzzles and structure. When she loses her job at an insurance company, Germaine is forced to take whatever position she’s offered. Not many mathematicians have answered calls at the Senior Citizens Helpline, but Germaine is determined to make her mark at City Hall.The mayor notices Germaine’s drive to function in a manner that is both effective and efficient. The way she handles the people on the other end of the phone line is very black and white. And that’s exactly the kind of person the mayor needs for her special project.A parking lot is the cause of a feud between the senior centre and the incredibly handsome Don Thomas, who manages the golf club next door. The mayor is on Don’s side, therefore, Germaine must find a solution to rid the town of the dilapidated centre using logistics and numbers.The math is easy for Germaine, and it doesn’t hurt that she gets to work close to Don.

Is there more to life than hard data and numbers?“The Helpline” is a fun read, full of unique characters. It questions what it means to be fully content in life.
